Steven Stars is an autism boarding school that helps Michigan teens with emotional, social, and academic difficulties. Unlike other autism boarding schools for Michigan teens, Seven Stars provides comprehensive therapeutic programming in addition to accredited academic programming. Seven Stars takes a unique approach to helping struggling teens, combining outdoor adventure programming, residential treatment, diagnostic services, and positive psychology.
Our top autism boarding school is not located in Michigan, and instead is in Utah. However, we help families from all over the country. By removing Michigan teens on the autism spectrum from their everyday environment, this will allow for a break in the routines common among teens on the spectrum. Though it may seem like a challenge to for parents to do this, it’s important to recognize that this will shift into positive growth. Breaking current routines can lead to healthier habits in the future.
Our autism boarding school helps Michigan teens become the best version of themselves. Throughout our programming, students learn to be:
– Self Informed: Teens become more aware of how they show up, both emotionally and socially.
– Self Directed: Students learn what their needs are and the most healthy way to meet them.
– Self Confident: Students feel unique, worthy, and special.
– Self Determined: Students find what motivates them; they discover their strengths, passions, and interest.

During off-campus adventure programming, students experience fun and exciting activities designed to be both therapeutic and academic in nature. Students learn from their environment while participating in activities such as skiing, backpacking, and rock climbing.
Treatment programming is a mix of residential treatment and adventure outings. Residential treatment occurs on campus and has therapeutic, educational, and social programming components. With on-campus activities, we work on building skills in an educational setting in order to increase confidence and improve social skills.
Throughout a student’s journey at Seven Stars, students receive a variety of assessments which highlight the strengths of students, rather than challenges. These functional and formal assessments may include a speech and language assessment, standardized tests, social skills evaluation, and a health and diet assessment.
